I agree with you Eva.  I prefer a good, old-fashioned brownie.  

During zucchini season this past summer, I tried out several different zucchini brownie recipes and had some success with those.  Nothing fancy--a regular chocolate brownie (no nuts, baking chips, frosting...), but they were made with shredded zucchini added to the batter.  Very good, very moist.

Hi Grana,
The brownie recipe I make most often uses 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa, and 2 cups of shredded zucchini (along with the other ingredients of course). There are so many different recipes out there that I keep trying them out to see how they differ and which I like best.

I have a recipe for Congo Squares which I love, my aunt gave me the recipe many years ago in Panama. Have to find it with my move things are all over in boxes still. Most are done but have a few more. Everything is made in one pot and put in the baking pan. Everyone loved them. Went to a BBQ once and took my squares and everyone ate them before dinner. I had just took them out of the oven and they were still warm. Made me feel good that they enjoyed them.

Try the Chocolate Caramel Brownies on this site.   They are spectacular.

A couple weeks ago I had to take a meal to a family and I was out of cookies (I usually take cookies) so I made this recipe.  I'll be making it again.

I make the standard brownies.  When I know my son will be coming here I make them without nuts.  He is allergic to nuts.

This is an all ttime favorite in my household.  Makes a full 9X13 pan or thinner 10x15 pan.  Debi

Congo Squares from Williams Sonoma

2 3/4 c.(345 g.) all purpose flour, sifted before measuring


2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. (180 g) unsalted butter, at room temp.
2 1/3 cups (500 g.) firmly packed dark brown sugar
3 extra large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. semi sweet or milk chocolate chips ( I always use semisweet)
1 1/4 cups (155 g) pecan halves, coursely chopped

Preheat oven to 350
Grease a 9 x 13 pan.
Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Place butter and brown sugar ina large bowl. Mix together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla.
Beat in the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans. Pour and scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top with a rubber spatula.
Bake until the top looks dry. 40-45 min. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely, then cut into squares.

Makes about 4 dozen squares.

Thank you!!  This is another one I can't wait to try.
And, of all things, I have dark brown sugar in my cupboard.  I bought it by mistake ages ago so it's great to have such
a great recipe to use it.
Thanks again.

I will have to try the Congo Squares.  Any brownie recipe is always welcome.  My most favorite one right now is one from The Barefoot Contessa.  Expensive to make but the recipe makes a HUGE quantity.  Here it is if anyone wants to try it.  Baking directions are a bit unorthodox but when you have this much tied up in ingredients you follow directions. By the way the recipe can be cut in half and made in a 13X9 pan.
Outrageous Brownies.
1 pound unsalted butter
1 pound PLUS 2 Cups semi sweet chocolate chips, divided
6 ounces unsweetened chocolate
6 extra large eggs
3 Tb instant coffee powder
2 Tb vanilla extract
2 1/4 Cup sugar
1 1/4 Cup flour, divided
1 Tb baking powder
1 tsp kosher or sea salt
3 Cups diced walnuts

*In a medium bowl put the 2 cups chocolate chips, diced walnuts and the 1/4 Cup flour.  toss together to coat.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour a 13X18 pan, a jelly roll pan will work brownies will be a bit thicker. Watch bake time.
Melt together the butter, chocolate chips and unsweetened chocolate on top of a double boiler.  Cool slightly.
Stir together the eggs, instant coffee, vanilla and sugar.  Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to room temperature.
Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Add cooled chocolate mixture.  Stir in the chips and nuts that have been dusted with the flour.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for about 30 minutes.  Halfway through the baking rap the pan against the oven rack to allow air to escape from between the pan and brownie dough. (really, pick up the pan and drop it down onto the oven rack!)
Do not over bake!!  Cool thoroughly.  Refrigerate and cut into squares.
These cut MUCH better if they have been refrigerated.  If you like warm brownies a few seconds in the microwave does the trick. 
These are very very rich.  I cut into 2 inch squares.

I hope you enjoy this if you try it let me know how you liked them.  By the way they freeze very well.

I have a family favorite for mint brownies. It is a recipe my sister made for my husband many years ago because he LOVES mint anything, especially the mint Girl Scout cookies. I am not sure if she got the recipe from somewhere or modified it from something she saw in another recipe. We will never know because she was killed in an automobile accident 13 years ago. I treasure the handwritten copy of the recipe she gave me so I could make them for my husband. Unfortunately because of his diabetes, I don't make them often because they have a LOT of sugar of them. If I do make them I cut them into tiny squares and allow him a taste every so often. One of these days I will work up a recipe using splenda and see how that turns out. The only problem is that it has a layer of melted chocloted chips on top and I don't know yet how I will substitute that. I will have to work on it. To my knowledge there are no sugar free chocolate chips on the market.

Hi Donna - I use sugar free chocolate chips (I get them at Wal-Mart) for a diabetic friend.  She loves them.
Just a couple of days ago I used the usual chocolate chip recipe with Splenda but I added lots of cocoa - which is sugar free - and used
macadamia nuts instead of  pecans.  It made a beautiful cookie.

The favorite Brownie Recipe that my family loves is the Cocoa Brownie recipe in the Betty Crocker Cookie Cook Book.
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2/3 cup flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 (moderate oven). Mix shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until well blended.  Measure flour by dipping method or by sifting.  Blend dry ingredients; mix in.  Stir in nuts.  Spread in well-greased pan (8x8x2".  Bake about 30 min.  Cool; cut in 2" squares. 
Makes:  16 brownies

Note:  If you use self-rising flour, omit baking powder and salt.
